Yes, I read of the manga. I especially love Fullmetal Alchemist and one of my favorite characters is Hawkeye's dog, Black Hayate. He's so cute I wanted to make a bag with him all over.



It's a smallish messenger bag, big enough for a book, my wallet, and some odds and ends.

I'm pretty proud of it. I made collages of the manga pages in photo shop and cut and treated several 8.5x11 sheets of twill with bubble jet set so that I could print the collages directly onto the fabric. Then I dyed the fabric with coffee (it was a little too white before I did that). And I just put together a simple messenger bag pattern that fit the pieces.


It was the first time I used those awesome magnetic closures. I LOVE those.


The full back collage with the flap.


One side . . .


And the other.


Oooh, there's a zipper pocket inside! I did use the zipper tutorial on the tutes list for that.

I decided not to coffee dye the little applique piece with just puppy Hayate on it so that he would stand out a little bit more. I like this bag so much, I'll probably end of making more in this style. Though, if I do do this again, I will remember to do the coffee dye on the fabric before I treat it for printing because, even after the solution is washed out the treated fabric soaks in color crazy much. So the bag is a little browner than I had originally intended and I had some issues getting the bottom and the strap (the only untreated pieces in the finished bag) to come close to matching the other bits. Also, the strap is a little wide, though I think I might just go back and fix that.
